I’m sure we’re all familiar with Soap and Glory. This is one of those brands that we have probably seen at Boots since we were little, from their hand creams to their bath sets – especially at Christmas time.
They have great and affordable body, skincare, makeup and hair products which actually do work!
One of their best selling products are their body scrubs – no surprise there, as we all love a bit of #selfcare – so we are going to breakdown two of their popular body scrubs – the Soap & Glory Buff and Ready Coconut Body Scrub and the Soap & Glory Scrub Of Your Life Smoothing Body Scrub!
Soap & Glory Magnificoco Buff and Ready Coconut Body Scrub
Buy Now; £8.00 via Boots
This scrub is scented with the iconic Soap and Glory’s coconut scent and the ingredients in this buffing scrub are so good for the skin.
The Soap & Glory Magnificoco Buff and Ready Coconut Body Scrub – £8.00 via Boots – has a skin-bufﬁng blend with green tea extract, exfoliating coconut shell and jojoba beads.
Green tea is great for skin because it helps with promoting DNA repair on damage that comes from UV rays, while coconut shell is such a great shell exfoliants as it doesn’t create micro-cuts in the skin. Last but not least – the jojoba bead. This is such a wonderful, gentle, exfoliant ingredient which isn’t as abrasive as plastic beads.
Soap & Glory Scrub Of Your Life Smoothing Body Scrub
Buy Now: £7.00 via Boots
As you can probably guess from the name, this is a scrub that will get you all the way together. Soap & Glory describe this scrub as the ‘ultimate super-smoothing body buffer’ and they DIDN’T lie!
The main issue we have with the Soap & Glory Scrub Of Your Life Smoothing Body Scrub – £7.00 via Boots – as Soap & Glory have not clearly stated what the exfoliating agents are int this scrub but the texture is very similar to brown sugar. One thing that is definitely included within this product is the Soap and Glory signature pink fragrance – which we absolutely loveeeee!
Now both of these scrubs work in a very similar way.
The Soap & Glory Magnificoco Buff and Ready Coconut Body Scrub has a distinct feel to it. The texture isn’t as abrasive as you might expect a scrub to be, and it’s a little bit sticky to the touch while the Soap & Glory Scrub Of Your Life Smoothing Body Scrub has a more coarse texture that’s typical of a body scrub.
Out of the two Soap & Glory Body Scrubs, the Buff and Ready Body Scrub is a lot more gentle and resembles a body buff vs. a body scrub. Due to it’s more gentle texture, it’s is definitely less abrasive towards the skin. While skin does feel smoother – indicating that this product DOES work – it’s definitely not as exfoliating as you would expect from a body scrub. This would be amazing for people who have sensitive skin and could definitely be used on a regular basis or between more intensive scrubs.
On the other hand, the Soap & Glory Scrub Of Your Life Smoothing Body Scrub is a lot more exfoliating.
We personally really liked this Soap & Glory Scrub as it left our skin feeling smoother than ever. This scrub made a noticeable difference to drier areas of our body e.g. elbows and knees.
The only hang up we have with this product is that it does have orange peel extract in it which can be sensitising for the skin. This scrub wouldn’t be a great choice for people with quite sensitive skin however, if you don’t have sensitive skin – this is a really effective and affordable scrub!
Although we enjoyed both these Soap & Glory scrubs, the Soap & Glory Scrub Of Your Life Smoothing Body Scrub is a much better scrub in terms of results and texture however if ingredients is more important to you then the Soap & Glory Magnificoco Buff and Ready Coconut Body Scrub might be better choice.
